...no, it wouldn't. In MIMEDefang, action_bounce doesn't actually
generate a bounce message, it issues an SMTP reject.
That means instead of telling the connecting server, "OK, I received the
message, you can disconnect now," it says, "Sorry, I'm not accepting
this message, please disconnect and don't bother trying to send it again."
(Side note: when responding to something, it always helps to quote the
relevant chunk of the previous message. That way people know which
message you're replying to.)
